Does your teen suffer emotionally for days after a gentle teasing?
Some teens have a highly sensitive nervous system. For them, their emotional experience is at such a constant intensity that it shapes their self-image, school performance, social life, and family relationships. Their extreme responsiveness makes them prone to anxiety and depression in the face of stressful situations.
I specialize in working with shy, sensitive and anxious teens, and can empower your child with the coping skills they need to thrive in the world. I teach them how to to digest their troubling experiences, as well as give them self-soothing techniques they can utilize in the face of rejection.
By guiding them through creative discussions and exercises, I uncover and address the challenges that your teen is struggling with. I help them sift through their past experiences for nuggets of wisdom, that they might reframe unpleasant memories as opportunities for growth. I also support them in setting healthy boundaries, and show them how to prepare for situations that they might deem uncomfortable or overwhelming.
My style is a collaborative effort between myself and your teen, with the intention of creating a fun and uplifting experience for them. I encourage teens to create a vision of the experience of life that they would like to have, and then support them in their journey towards that goal.
